Methodist Sports Medicine is pleased to announce its 2016 physician Fellowship graduate and new fellows. Now in its third decade, this program gives doctors a chance to undergo one year of in-depth specialty training in a specific orthopedic field.
Dr. Brian Camilleri, DO, has completed his fellowship for 2015-16. The incoming fellows for 2016-17 are Dr. Robert Cagle and Dr. Aaron Carpiaux.
Camilleri is slated to perform another fellowship in Cleveland while serving as assistant team physician for the Browns, after which he will start practice with Central Indiana Orthopedics in Anderson, Ind.
“The sports medicine fellowship at MSM has allowed me to refine my knowledge and skills in every aspect of sports medicine. Each faculty member is highly skilled, well respected, and a leader in their sub-specialty,” Dr. Camilleri said. “This is a premier fellowship for those wanting to learn how to become a team physician, from the high school level all the way to professional athletes.”
Cagle earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Purdue University and his medical degree from Indiana University’s School of Medicine. He performed his internship and orthopedic residency at the Cleveland clinic. He has served as team physician for a number of high school football and hockey teams, as well as the ringside doctor for boxing and MMA matches.
Carpiaux received his degree in kinesiology from the University of Wisconsin and his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Kentucky, and looks forward to cultivating his interest in sports medicine during his fellowship.
One of the preeminent sports medicine practices in the Midwest, Methodist Sports Medicine has only fellowship-trained doctors on its staff. This means they have all completed four years of medical school, at least five years of orthopedic residency and a year of fellowship training under the guidance of a top orthopedic specialist.
Accredited by the ACGME since 1988 and operated with the funding and support of the Methodist Sports Medicine Research and Education Foundation, the Fellowship Program has trained nearly 50 orthopedic sports medicine fellows since its inception. Candidates are given the opportunity to share in patient care, surgery and clinical research.
“Just as we are committed to having only fellowship-trained doctors on our orthopedic team, we also dedicate our time and resources to passing on that training and expertise to a new generation of physicians,” said Dr. Mark Ritter, President of Methodist Sports Medicine. “Our sincerest congratulations to our outgoing and incoming fellows.”
